DAUK in the Evening Standard: hospital bosses ‘warned to prepare for A&Es to be like New Year’s Eve’ on July 4 as pubs open on ‘Super Saturday’

Dr Rinesh Parmar, Chair of the Doctors’ Association UK, told the Standard: “Doctors and healthcare staff across the NHS have been working flat out during the pandemic to keep patients safe. It is absolutely vital that over the weekend and the coming weeks that people not only follow the social distancing guidance but they minimise the impact on A&E departments. As pubs re-open on 4th July we would call on people to exercise caution and moderation so that they do not suffer the ill effects of excess alcohol consumption.”
